Former Livingston striker Rory Boulding has joined Hearts on trial.
The Englishman reported for pre-season training with John McGlynn’s side on Monday, as he looks to win a contract with the SPL outfit.
STV understands Kilmarnock are also keen to take the player on trial, should Hearts decide against making a move.
Boulding turned down a new deal with Livi in the summer, having scored 12 goals in 29 games during his season-long stay at Livingston.
After a slow start to his career at Almondvale, the 23-year-old netted ten times in his last eight games with the club, as well as scoring a hat-trick against McGlynn’s former side Raith Rovers.
Boulding moved to Scotland from Accrington Stanley at the start of the 2011/12 campaign, and also had spells with Bradford City, Hucknall Town, Ilkeston Town and Mansfield Town.
